Poor Little Heart! - Poem by Emily Dickinson

-->

192

Poor little Heart!
Did they forget thee?
Then dinna care! Then dinna care!

Proud little Heart!
Did they forsake thee?
Be debonnaire! Be debonnaire!

Frail little Heart!
I would not break thee—
Could'st credit me? Could'st credit me?

Gay little Heart—
Like Morning Glory!
Wind and Sun—wilt thee array!

    Very dignified lady of her time. Writing with a constant of intelligence and insightful understanding. Each word is almost brick like in her poetry, showing a keen, intense, dynamic, force in her writings. (Report) Reply
